Antarctica Countdown 69 Days and Counting: “I am the Tow Truck”

I met Natelle and Bethany for a tire pulling session up Signal Hill this morning and I do always enjoy the comments from passing drivers and walkers. Standing at the bottom of Temperance Street, ready to begin, two guys in a pick up pull up.

“You seem to have a flat tire there,” one of them quipped.

“Indeed I do”, was my reply.

“Do you need us to call you a tow truck?” the other one asked.

I replied, “That would be very helpful given what I am about to do.”

About halfway up the hill, the perfect comeback finally popped into my brain…what I wished I’d said and what will, of course, become part of the urban legend of telling tire pulling stories is that I answered “I am the tow truck.”
